Noble Horizons is honored to share a recent presentation by former Stanford University professor, Kim Maxwell, Ph.D., inventor of the modern dial-up modem and founder of the company that was awarded the worldwide standard for DSL. On August 4, Maxwell explained how rural areas like the northwest corner of Connecticut can secure a vibrant future by bringing fast, universal connectivity.
